The Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute's summer internship program provides an opportunity for talented college students (undergraduate and graduate) and high school teachers to come to MBARI for a period of 10 weeks to work on a specific project under MBARI staff supervision.
Each intern is selected following a rigorous application procedure, merit review, and a telephone interview process. They are from around the world and represent a variety of different backgrounds, experience, and education. They all share a common desire to learn more about the marine environment and to work with the scientists and engineers at MBARI.
The application period for the 2012 internship program is now open. All materials must be received by February 9, 2012.
Applications must include a curriculum vitae, a cover letter (stating which project you are applying for and why you would make a good MBARI intern), and three letters of recommendation. All applicants must also fill out an online supplemental information form.
